Early morning, we will start our journey from Isfahan to the ancient city of Izeh by driving through magnificent mountains and captivating nature. Along the way, we will have few amazing stops including Karun dam. This dam is one of the biggest dams in Iran.
Just before our arrival to Izeh, we will visit one of the Bakhtiari cemeteries with lion’s grave stones, these big lions’ grave stones represented of the person who is buried there. Bigger stone lion, more important the person is buried underneath.
Afterwards, we will continue towards Izeh, to visit one of the oldest temple and historical sites in Iran. Eshkaft-e Salman (Tarisha Temple) has embraced the greatest cuneiform script of modern Ilam with first appearance of women illustrated next to men on stone reliefs (12th century BC). Then we will continue our tour to visit another relief from Parthian’s period.
